Q.Planting Near Oaks

Anonymous added on January 26, 2011 | Answered

What are some shrubs or flowers that I can plant about 10 feet from a 70-year-old oak tree? I’d like to create a garden area of sorts since I can’t grow grass well, even 15 feet from the tree. Any suggestions on what would work? It’s a part shade area.
